BACKGROUND There is currently no technique to image quantitatively bone metastases. Here, we assessed the value of MRI of the axial skeleton (AS-MRI) as a single step technique to quantify bone metastases and measure tumor response. METHODS AS-MRI was performed in 38 patients before receiving chemotherapy for metastatic HRPCa, in addition to PSA, computed tomography of the thorax, abdomen, and pelvis [CT-TAP]; and Tc-99m bone scintigraphy. A second AS-MRI was performed in 20 patients who… CONTINUE READING
